  • Marriage: She was married on December 13, 1983.
  • Death: She died on February 24, 2011, at age 56, in Kaukauna, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Katherine "Katie" Witkowski, 56, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, at home in Kaukauna. Katie was born on Aug. 24, 1954, to Gene and Mitzi (Van Dalen) Kronforst in Appleton. On Dec. 17, 1983, she married the love of her life, Chuck Witkowski, whom she knew she would marry the first time they met. Together they built a life together that she deeply enjoyed. Katie worked as a process engineer and an environmental engineer at Appleton Coated for 35 years where she was a loyal, committed and hard-working employee. Katie had a passion for children. She loved foster parenting for 15 years and hosted many exchange students. She generously opened her home and heart to everyone from friends and family to strangers and especially children. She embraced wholeheartedly any "assignment" God gave her. It was her desire to pass on her ethical and moral compass to her children that she received from her father. Katie gave quietly out of a loving and caring heart. She was a member of St. Katharine Drexel St. Mary Parish and a card carrying member of the Republican Party with a firm belief in the founding fathers' principles.

    Katie is survived by her husband, Chuck Witkowski; eight children, Stacey Witkowski, Brandon; Jennifer Wilkum, Waupun; Lucy (fiance, Isa Robles) Kronforst, Milwaukee; David Kronforst, Mexico; Christopher Witkowski, Okinawa, Japan; Kyle Witkowski, Milwaukee; Jeremy Witkowski, Kaukauna; and Jorge Witkowski, Kaukauna; two grandchildren, Kolton Witkowski and Daniel Wilkum; two brothers, Milt Nash, Neenah; and Phillip (Shari) Kronforst, Bryant, Texas; nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends; her beloved golden doodles "her girls" Maggie and Molly, "the boys" Calvin and Hobbes and the cats, Cesar, Sterling and Blue.

    A memorial service for Katie will be held on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, at 7 p.m. at the FARGO FUNERAL HOME. A time of visitation will be held on Tuesday from 4 p.m. until the time of services at the Funeral Home.
